Every year 4.5 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs. Out of the 4.5 million, one out of six requires medical attention by a physician. The victims of dog attacks are frequently left with scars and disfiguring injuries.
Unfortunately, many dog owners allow their dogs to run loose in the presence of children or unsuspecting adults. If the dog's owner or caretaker is aware of the dog having a previous history of biting, snarling its teeth or acting aggressively, that known “vicious propensity” behavior requires that the owner exercise greater vigilance in keeping people safe from the dog.
In all dog bite cases, it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the incident in question, contact witnesses, and collect medical records to evaluate and record any injuries. All of these things bolster the strength of a dog bite case, and help to secure a fair and expedient resolution.
